The entrance and the stairwell

Ingresso 1 Istituzionale

The entrance

The first exhibit is right at the entrance to the museum. It is a showcase containing an overview of the historic and artistic items to be found within.

The panels placed here introduce the historical and philosophical themes of the museum.
They examine the origins of the long- standing relationship between man and medicinal plants in prehistoric times.

 

The stairwell

Valuable collections of botanical illustration plates from the Bibliotheca Antiqua are displayed on the walls of the stairwell from the first to the fifth floor of the Bourbon del Monte palace and are periodically replaced.
The famous illustrations from Hortus Eystettensis by Basilius Besler (1561-1629), botanist and apothecary from Nuremburg have been displayed here in the past. Currently, the colourful botanical engravings from Jardin d’Éden created in 1783 by Pierre J. Buchoz, a French physician and naturalist, are displayed here.
